16.1 MP APS-C size HD image sensor

The same sensor format that Sony builds into the full-sized a DSLRs. With 13 times the area of the typical point-and-shoot image sensor, APS-C makes the difference between ?snapshots? and ?photographs,? delivering an exceptional combination of high resolution, high sensitivity and gorgeous, blurred backgrounds.

BIONZ image processor

The brains of the camera is a refined version of Sony?s BIONZ image processor. Its chroma noise reduction delivers high-resolution, low-noise photos even at ISO 16000 sensitivity. Also enables fast processing for up to 5.5 fps continuous shooting of data-intensive 16.1 megapixel images, 2D/3D Sweep Panorama modes and 6 image layering.

ISO 200 - 16000 sensitivity

The Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ image processing engine combine to ensure clear imaging with reduced noise. In addition to an ISO AUTO range of ISO 200 - 3200, user-selectable sensitivity of up to ISO 16000 is offered, making it possible to capture low-light photos with reduced blur using fast shutter speeds.

Full HD 1080/60i/24p movies

Record super smooth 1080 Full HD Video in either 60i or 24p frames per second. Records in your choice of 1080/60i or 24p AVCHD format or in PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 format.1

Built-in flash

Perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to get the shot, the built-in Guide Number 6* flash combines with high ISO sensitivity to enable shooting in just about any setting.

180 degree tiltable 3.0" LCD

Self-portraits made easy 180 degree tiltable 3.0? Xtra Fine LCD screen and 3-second count down timer

Up to 5.5 frames per second

Capture the decisive moment in sports and get the ideal baby photo. Up to 5.5 fps continuous shooting at full 16.1 MP resolution with exposure and focus fixed at the first frame. Standard continuous shooting at up to 2.5 fps.

Convenient USB charging

Easily recharge the NEX-F3 via USB charging

Live View LCD

The LCD monitor is active full-time for composing shots. Provides a what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview of white balance, focus, depth of field, exposure and 100% framing accuracy, plus informative on-screen displays.

On-screen Help Guide

Provides a ready-reference that explains the camera?s modes and settings. It walks through the camera?s operation so you get the best shot. Helps you advance from basic operation to greater sophistication.

Control Wheel + Customizable Soft Keys

Unlike cameras that bristle with knobs, buttons and dials, the NEX-F3 features a simple turn-and-click Control Wheel and context-sensitive Soft Keys. It?s elegant, uncluttered and intuitive.

Accepts a DSLR A-mount lenses

Using the LA-EA1 or LA-EA2 adaptor (sold separately), you can attach the full selection of a A-mount system lenses, which includes 34 current models and an installed base of millions of lenses worldwide. Operational restrictions apply.

Accepts image stabilized lenses

Selected E-mount lenses incorporate Optical SteadyShot image stabilization to combat the effects of camera shake. Building stabilization into the lenses enables the camera body to be remarkably thin and light.

Anti-Dust Technology

Anti-Dust Technology helps keep the CMOS sensor clean, resulting in consistently clear pictures. First a static-free coating on the sensor's low-pass filter helps repel dust. Then vibration automatically dislodges dust from the sensor.

Dual Format Media Card Slot

For cost-effective, convenient storage and sharing of your images, the camera accepts Memory Stick PRO Duo/Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo and SD/SDHC media (Class 4 or higher recommended). (Memory card is required. All are sold separately.)

Intelligent Accessory port

Intelligent accessory port allows use of external flash, microphone and OLED EVF (all sold separately).

RAW image capture

The NEX-F3 saves your pictures as compact JPEG files and/or ultra-high quality RAW files. RAW files save images prior to de-mosaicing, white balance, sharpness and color enhancement. This retains maximum latitude for enhancing the image on your PC.

25-point Auto Focus

25 sensors cover a very wide area of the scene, for accurate focusing even when the subject is far from the center of the frame.

Multi-segment metering

Optimizes exposure based on 1200 segments. Choice of Multi, Center and Spot metering accommodates a full range of shooting situations.

Manual Focus Assist

Greatly magnifies the viewfinder image when you touch the focus ring, making it easy to get razor-sharp images. Works with E-mount lenses only.

Peaking for Precise Focus

The Peaking function makes precise manual focusing much easier by highlighting the edges that are in focus in your choice of three colors ( white, red, or yellow). This is especially helpful during macro or portrait photography where accurate focus can make or break your shot.

P/A/S/M operating modes

The NEX-F3 offers a full range of controls from the beginner's iAUTO mode to P/A/S/M: Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and Manual. On-screen prompts help you refine your skills, build your confidence and exercise greater creative control for still image capture as well as movie mode too.

iAUTO (Intelligent Auto) mode

Unifies and simplifies Sony intelligent technologies. Takes advantage of Intelligent Scene Recognition, Face Detection technology, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization without leaving Auto Mode so you always get the best shot.

Self-portrait shooting

1) Self-portrait shooting - there are two separate bullets for tilting LCD (might want to combine), and although they mention the tilt is useful for self-portraits, there's no mention of the integral 3 sec countdown timer nor the reverse preview.

Enhanced Tracking Focus

Tracking Focus continuously tracks a user-designated subject and is now more effective at tracking people. If the subject turns away from the camera, face-detection tracking automatically switches to subject tracking and continues tracking.

Auto Portrait Framing

Simply photograph a person and Auto Portrait Framing will save an additional, optimally framed image in portrait or landscape orientation. Combining Face Detection and By Pixel Super Resolution technologies with rule of thirds, Auto Portrait Framing provides beautifully composed and appealingly balanced full resolution portraits.

Photo Creativity interface

The Photo Creativity interface enables you to easily enjoy the creative expression of SLR-quality digital imaging without complex jargon. Changes can be combined/ removed and viewed in real time on the LCD making it a breeze to make adjustments. Choose from seven different Photo Creativity functions using the convenient control wheel and center button including; Picture Effect, Background Defocus Control, Soft Skin Effect, Color, Brightness, Vividness, and Self-timer / Continuous Advance.

Picture Effect mode

There are 11 types (15 variations) of picture effects to choose from: HDR Painting, Soft Focus, Miniature, Retro Photo, Soft High-key, Partial Color (Green/Blue/Yellow/ Red), Pop Color, High Contrast Monochrome, Toy Camera, Posterization (B/W, Color), and Rich Monotone . Each is unique and each give you a new and exciting way to make your images and videos pop.

Clear Image Zoom

Utilizing Sony?s exclusive By Pixel Super Resolution Technology, Clear Image Zoom increases the effective focal length of your lens up to 2x by digitally magnifying the center of your image with nearly imperceptible degradation. It virtually doubles the effective focal length of whatever lens you?re using providing greater shooting flexibility.

Interchangeable lenses

Compatible with Sony?s E-mount series of smaller, lighter lenses designed specifically for a compact interchangeable lens cameras. Opens up a world of creative options.

Sweep Panorama Mode

Capture expansive landscapes automatically. Press the shutter, sweep vertically or horizontally. The camera does the rest, continuously shooting images and stitching them together. Up to 23 MP image size. Up to 202 degrees maximum sweep angle (16mm focal length).

3D Sweep Panorama Mode

Capture vast scenic vistas and 16:9 shots in spectacular 3D. As you sweep across the panorama, the camera records separate right-eye and left-eye images that make landscapes come alive on your 3D television1. Records both JPEG and MPO file formats.

Anti-Motion Blur mode

Corrects for subject movement to capture amazingly clean and sharp images in low light. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image that minimizes subject blur.

Hand-held Twilight Mode

Get cleaner and sharper nighttime pictures?beyond the capability of traditional cameras?without using flash or a tripod. The camera leverages the large, APS-C image sensor and captures six images in a fraction of a second. Combining the data from all six creates a single image of extraordinary detail and low noise.

Auto HDR built into camera

High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography captures more scene contrast than a single exposure can handle by combining the best highlight detail from one shot and the best shadow detail from another for one incredible shot. Until recently, you needed a computer and editing software. Sony builds HDR in. Handles severe backlighting and other high-contrast scenes. Captures in a split second. (Recommended for still subjects.)

Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO)

Dynamic Range Optimizer improves results with backlit subjects and recovers details hidden in shadows. Settings include Auto, Level with a choice of five operating levels and Off.

?Background Defocus? control

Cameras with APS-C sensors take beautiful pictures because they can blur the background. That helps make your subject stand out as the center of attention in portrait photography. But you?ve had to know about aperture f-stops and shutter speeds. Now Sony makes it easy. Simply turn the Control Wheel one way for backgrounds in focus, the other for background defocus.

Face Detection technology

The camera can automatically detect up to eight individual faces and adjust focus, exposure, white balance and flash to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends. Can prioritize children or adults.

Smile Shutter technology

Captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply select the Smile Shutter mode and the camera takes the picture automatically. You can prioritize children or adults and adjust the smile sensitivity.

Eight Scene Selection Modes

These help you get the shot by optimizing the camera for specific shooting situations. Select from Portrait, Sports Action, Macro, Landscape, Sunset, Night View, Night Portrait and Hand-held Twilight modes.

Six Creative Style settings

Control how the camera processes your images with six finishing styles: Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset and B&W. You can even fine-tune contrast, saturation, and sharpness to your personal taste.

Index and Slide Show Display

Quickly review your photos using 6- or 12-frame index views, or as an automatic slide show with fade-in/fade-out effect.

HDMI output for HD viewing

Enjoy HD movies and stunning still images on a compatible HDTV. The camera includes an HDMI output. In addition, the BRAVIA Sync system works with compatible Sony BRAVIA HDTVs enabling you to control camera playback using the television?s remote8.

Up to 470 Shots of battery life

4 out of 5 stars   Everything I Need
By John E. (Fountain Hills, AZ) February 12, 2013
Review submitted for Sony NEX-F3K Digital Camera built in flash with 18-55mm Lens (Silver) (SNNEXF3KS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: This camera is everything I need for my real estate business. Came with a wide angle lens for tight interior shots. The auto adjustments the camera makes is nearly fool-proof. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking to move up from point and shoot, but intimidated by the higher end cameras.
